The MERC ELITE 271 model is our most popular model - as well as one of the most popular models among professional hitters. The large barrel, long taper and medium-to-thin handle with a tapered knob makes this bat very easy to swing and control through the hitting zone. The balanced design creates a very fast swing with a whipping action that is great for every hitting style and level of experience, including experienced hitters, younger players and hitters that are new to using a wood bat. This bat is cupped.
The MERC ELITE 271 model features a 2 1/2" barrel, 6" parallel wall and a long taper to a medium-to-thin handle (15/16") creating a very well-balanced bat.
